Tangent Tue: Can IT help you recover from an earthquake, flood?

Yes—here’s how:

Our fourth desktop virtualization use case is about ensuring business continuity (keeping things up and running in the event of a disaster).

Major events like earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods give IT teams the opportunity to be the hero, using desktop virtualization tools to quickly respond to unforeseen challenges and get the organization back on track.

Desktop virtualization helps IT address many issues that disrupt business continuity and accelerate the organization’s ability to recover in a disaster situation.

  • Always-on desktops, that can be accessed from remote locations, such as those outside of a disaster zone
  • Minimize productivity loss while opening more communication channels by allowing users to access information from a wide variety of endpoints, (such as smartphones)
  • Meeting compliance requirements under all conditions, and maintain availability and data integrity

With the importance of disaster recovery in mind, the designers of Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) took specific measures to deliver the highest level of business continuity.

1. For IT to get their job done under any circumstance, voice and video are required in addition to the desktop. Only VXI brings virtual desktop, voice and video together.

2. VXI also integrates end-user devices within this platform, offering these capabilities on the Cisco Cius.

Are you looking at desktop virtualization to meet your business continuity requirements? What are your top priorities/concerns as you design your system?
